Djelimady Tounkara - Fanta Bourama
The best African guitar - EVER
Djelimady Tounkara is known for his days with the Super Rail Band (the official state band in Mali for years). But his solo work since showcases his incredible talent. Djelimady's guitar riffs will blow your mind. In the true Manding tradition, he uses the pentatonic scale in his work. I must admit I am bias, as Djelimadi wrote this particular song for my husband Brehima and I soon after we were married in Mali. Translation available upon request. Djelimady has acquired many influences as of late in his guitar styling. Cuba being one influence. CHECK HIS CATALOG OUT!
